Chicago Collector downsizing Collection
I represent a gentleman here in Chicago that has a large collection of mid century and older decorative glass - many of which are Blenko.
He is anxious to sell the collection as he is relocating his offices.
I've attached only a couple of photos of the more than 200 pieces (others are Viking, Anchor Hocking, Fostoria, Kosta Boda, Cambridge, etc.
If you know of anyone in or around the Chicago area that we might contact about selling these pieces, we would certainly appreciate the lead. I've listed same on Craigslist, but have not received any responses.
Or, if there is a decorative glass show coming to our town that might have dealers interested in purchasing the collection, we would also appreciate that lead.
Thank you for your consideration,
